Relapse Records has announced the signing of Chicago/Peoria, IL quartet MINSK.

MINSK bassist/vocalist Sanford Parker comments on the signing: "Relapse's long-standing commitment to signing great progressive and creative bands make it a perfect place for us to be, and we're very happy to be a part of [the label]." MINSK's yet-to-be-titled Relapse debut is scheduled for an early 2007 release and will be recorded by Parker and the band at his Volume Recording studio (PELICAN, UNEARTHLY TRANCE).

MINSK has previously released two recordings: 2005's full-length "Out of a Center Which is Neither Dead Nor Alive" as well as the band's 2003 release "Burning". MINSK will see the vinyl edition of "Out of a Center…" later this year. The band will also be contributing to the upcoming EYEHATEGOD tribute, "For The Sick", with their rendition of "Ruptured Heart Theory".
